Attend a talk by historian Dr. Garrett-Scott on Jan. 12th

On the evening of January 12, the MW Library will host a Zoom talk by historian Dr. Shennette Garrett-Scott, author of Banking on Freedom, a book in the Columbia Studies in the History of U.S. Capitalism series that features Maggie L. Walker.

Dr. Garrett-Scott teaches at the University of Mississippi. If her name sounds familiar, you may have read the Wall Street Journal article about Maggie Walker a couple months ago that mentioned Banking on Freedom. A free reading guide for the book is available from Columbia University Press. You can check out the book from the MW Library, the Richmond Public Library, the Library of Virginia, or if you’re affiliated with the University of Richmond, from their Boatwright Library as well.

MLWGS students, parents, faculty, staff, and alumni, as well as alumni of the original Maggie L. Walker High School are welcome to attend! Please follow the registration link below. If you have any questions about this special event, please email Ms. DeGroat at
